Coconut Water for Plants. How does it work?


Like seaweed, coconut water feeds your plants in a way that fertilisers alone can't. This is because fertilizers don't contain amino acids or growth promoting hormones. 

AMINO ACIDS
(AKA the building blocks of life). As a biostimulant, amino acids are proven to play important roles in enhancing plant productivity. These functions combined with the ability to be approved for organic use makes sustainably produced amino acids (like the ones found in Groconut) a smart choice for growers.

PLANT GROWTH HORMONES
Coconut water is a natural source of cytokinins, auxins, gibberellins and even uncharacterized plant growth hormones that have been proven to have substantial effects on the rate of plant growth. There are other sources of natural plant growth hormones such as seaweed, honey, cinnamon, moringa leaf extract, willow water and many more however studies show that Groconut has a better effect on overall plant growth than many of these. "The experiment shows that Coconut water supports a higher rooting percentage over Moringa leaf extract (MLE) due to the presence of auxins and cytokinins (Yong et al., 2013) CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
